Preferred Solution: transfer VMware installation

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: transfer VMware installation

can you make an image of it then put it on your drive since its basically the same thing but just a smaller drive and ram.

I'm trying to get the Programs and Data from the old pc (60gb XP Pro) to new PC (Vista Home 220gb).

someone said that with VMWare Converter, the old PC can simply fit into the new PC as Virtual Machine, including the old OS (XP Pro).

good thing is that both the VMWare Converter and VMWare Player are freeware.

however, my stumbling block is how to physically connect the old PC to the new? I have a USB to IDE adapter and the new PC sees the entire old HDD as an F drive, but this is not technically a "machine", so the VMWare Converter does not recognize it.

Anyone have experience with such a project?

also, if there is some other freeware or $oftware to do this, please advise. I want to transfer the Programs and Data, but do not want to blow away the Vista Home on the new PC.

thanks

I downloaded the VMware software to my C: drive, and when I clicked the file to open it, it opened to about 90% at which point I got the following error: Setup cannot continue. The Microsoft Runtime DLL installer failed to complete installation.

I have Windows 7 and plenty of HD space. I've never had this installation problem before. It seems that Windows 7 has been a lot of trouble since I've bought this laptop; I've encountered numerous problems with software using it, though I don't know if this problem is related to it.

Any suggestions? I've googled til I'm blue in the face with no solutions.

Hey all,

let me first start off by saying i didnt really know which forum to post in as it relates to both Windows and Mac :P

Anyway, Im trying to install Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.5 onto vmware and i have the actual vmware config files etc, but the problem is when i go into boot and use -v, it gets up to dsmos starting but then says its logs a crash report and does so about every 10 seconds. Ive left it running, but it just keeps doing this.

Ive also tried all the different settings, and modified the config file as well but nothing seems to work and always results in the same thing.

Ive uploaded a screenshot if that will help:

I'm trying to install VMware Workstation 11 on a Windows 7 Pro x64 machine and I get the following error:


Quote:




Error: This product can only be installed on 64bit Windows 7 or newer Operating Systems.




I am most definitely using 64 bit Windows 7. The installer should be fine because I was able to install it onto another Windows 7 Pro machine. I did have Workstation 9 and VMware player previously installed at different times on this machine, and they were uninstalled prior to the attempt to install Workstation 11.

Any ideas? I haven't found any similar issues on Google and I'd need to purchase a support contract from VMware to get any support from them.

Answer:Kernel Panic after installation of Mac OS X 10.6.2 on VMware

Mac OS X doesn't work in VMware on Windows without some heavy hacking (Boot Loaders, custom kernals, and feature modifications). You'll have to check with the OSX86 and Hackintosh groups in order to do that. We can't help much here with that.

I am trying to install Vista from a DVD which has been converted to an ISO. The installation goes great expect, I have to click OK on two questions. The first screen that requires me to click OK ask which version of Vista I want to install. This screen only shows only one version. The second screen deals with selecting a drive. Again only one selection as the VM only has the virtual disk.

How do I script answers to these question so that OK will automatically be pressed?

Hi forum, i have a strange behavior after ive installed  the latest vmware workstation. My system:- OS = vista business x86- system = t61pAfter the vmware installation i reboot the thinkpad, i got the windows logon screen, enter there my logon credentials and then i got a black screen. The mouse cursor is still visible and moving, hdd led is lickering, the "FN+" key even display  the context menus for the shortcut. But windows will not load. I even wait for 30 minutes. The solution to fix is just to reboot in safe mood and fall back to system restore point before installing the vmware.Can somebody help me so i can run vmware on my thinkpad? Thank you.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:t61p freeze on winlogon after installation of vmware

Final solution for this issue:- if you are running (like in my case) nod32 (ESET) security suite (antivirus, firewall, and spyware tool) then you have to add all of your vmware.EXE to the list of exclusion inside your security suite- do not install the thinkpad ultranav driver (for my experience the notebook is quite faster without this driver, you will never use it anyway).Now for me the vmware is working great. Hope this will help someone while facing the same problem.

Hi folks,

so I was following the directions listed here:
http://www.squidoo.com/use-existing-...apps-in-ubuntu

At the point where it says to configure the IDE drivers to work with VMWare, I went into device manager and selected IDE/ATAPI controllers... I changed the settings for both Primary and Secondary IDE Channels to the setting recommended in the guide (creating a new VMWare profile, of course). I stopped at that point (have not continued) and tried to boot into my windows installation. It won't boot, period... It gets past BIOS, then the windows XP logo flashes briefly, then a blue screen with some text (flashes too quickly, I can't read it) then the computer reboots.

Thank God I can still use my linux install so I can backup all my documents. (they live on a separate NTFS partition).

What to do???

When I install VmWare Player 3.1.1 to use some VM the wireless does not work anymore.
When I push the buttom to activate the wireless the led does not light and the FN+F8 key said that the wireless is not activated.

Hi

I know this issue?. the VM (virtual machine) is NOT compatible with Toshiba Flash Card Support Utility.
The VM affects the functionality of FN buttons.
So you have to remove this from system in order to be able to use the FN buttons.

Hi,I get a consistent BSOD during the installation of VMware Workstation Player. I can replicate it very easily. I have gotten 4 BSOD due to this (installation of VMware Workstation Player) while trying to debug/find the cause myself.

Attached is the latest/last BSOD DM log collector file. (I have all 4 BSOD DM Log collector files if needed)

BSOD Error: Driver irql not less or equal. Same BSOD error consistently.
The BSOD always occurs during/mid-installation. I believe (Might be wrong) at the point where the installer states "Installing Virtual Network Drivers".

The installer was run from C drive (Desktop) with installation into C drive.

Things I've Done/Tried:
1) Windows Updates & Application Updates
2) Fresh Install of VMware workstation always
- Remove any VMware files from installation path manually
- Does not register as installed in control panel, hence unable to uninstall normally. BSOD always occurs during installation
3) End Task/Exit any non-essential background applications/task

I thought I'd give Windows 10 a try in the virtual machine using VMWare player, but I'm just not having any luck with it. My host computer is a lenovo laptop with a Pentium T2390 dual core processor running Windows 7 x64, attempting to run Windows 10 x86 in VMWare player (apparently my cpu is incompatible with virtualization of 64 bit operating systems). When I boot from the ISO, I see the blue windows "pane" for a few moments, but right before the little round dots are supposed to appear underneath it, I get:

"Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error code: 0x0000005D
Parameters:
0x3060F0D
0x756E6547
0x6V65746E"

Just to see what would happen, I tried a 32 bit Windows 8 ISO as well and got the same exact thing (yes, I do have "Windows 8" selected as the guest operating system inside of VMWare player, and I have tried other options as well just to see what would happen, they all do the same thing). A Windows 7 (or earlier) 32 bit installer iso will boot up just fine. I have "Burned" this iso to a USB drive and successfully booted the Windows 10 x86 installer on two computers (including the one on which it refuses to work in a VM), so I know that the iso is good and that the computer should be compatible (I did give the bios setup a quick run down to make sure there weren't any virtualization settings that might conflict with what I'm trying to do as well and didn't see any).

Any ideas why it won't work?

Answer:[SOLVED] VMWare Player: Error 0x5D when booting from installation media

Ah Hah! I answered my own question. Apparently the problem was that even though my processor supports DEP (or "No Execute"/"Execute Disable"), it is disabled in BIOS by default. The catch is that because this was a "value line" computer, there is no option in the BIOS/setup screen to enable this.

The key to getting things to work was following the directions in this thread over on the lenovo forums and use SYMCMOS to change the settings. Here's a step-by-step for anyone else who might happen to be stuck in this boat with a Lenovo N200 or similar laptop:

1. Use Rufus to create a bootable USB drive of FreeDOS.
2. Download Symcmos and place it on the root of the newly created USB drive.
3. Download a DOS text editor. I used "edit" (simply open the ZIP file and extract EDIT.exe to the root of the USB drive).
4. Boot from the USB drive and use the command "Symcmos -?" to see all the commands and their usage.
5. Run "Symcmos -Lsettings.txt" to export all the current settings to a text file called "settings.txt".
6. Type "edit settings.txt" to open the exported file and see all the things that can be changed. The Number on the left in parentheses identifies the setting and the number on the right in brackets configures the settings. For example, The number accompanying "(0267)" will be "[0001]", which means, "disable D.E.P.". Remember that these will be differe... Read more

Hi all

To install W8 developer edition (current version) as a VM with vmware workstation you have to download / upgrade to version 8. Version 7.1X and earlier won't work. Vmware player (current version) gives same problem as vmware workstation 7.1x.

When you install choose W7 as the OS (there isn't a W8 option yet not surprisingly) and select I will install the OS later.

Then select the DVD device in the vm serttings as a virtual ISO (you don't need to burn a physical DVD) and boot from the device.

Then it will install more or less as W7.

Ignore any prompt for a product key if it appears. I wasn't asked for one but some people seem to get a request for a product key when attempting to install W8 as a virtual machine.

You can download a free trial version for 30 days from the vmware site. ( it may be that eventually version 7.1x will work or the next upgrade of W8 will work so unless you want to upgrade to version 8 of vmware workstation I'd start with downloading the trial).

Then it installs OK

I don't have enough privileges yet to upload screenshot but it installs fine.

I've also posted a suggestion on how to remove / disable the metro gui for those that want a more "classical" Windows look - you can see the post in the W7 Forum until I can get approval to post in the relevant section on this Forum on customising W8

I'm upgrading to a new ASUS motherboard, new chipset (x79 to x99) and a new processor. I'm going to try to run my current Windows 10 installation (a retail copy - not OEM) without reinstalling from scratch.

On the previous install (after backing everything up) I removed as many of the old system drivers as made sense (USB3, graphics, etc..) and deactivated any software that needed that. I'm close to ready to see what happens. If it all fails then I'll just reinstall from scratch - which I'll do anyway on some rainy day. I'm just interested in seeing how well Windows 10 will cope with such a change of hardware - though it's still an ASUS Deluxe board, a recent Intel Chipset, and a fairly recent processor.

BUT - HERE'S THE QUESTION: When one makes such a major hardware change Windows10 will certainly complain and require reactivation. But is there any grace period??

I'm hoping I might have a couple of days to confirm that everything works properly before having to call Microsoft. If there's a serious hardware issue then I would have to revert back to my old hardware until any problems are resolved.

Does anyone here know what will likely happen? I'm just concerned that I might be stuck with a computer that's locked until reactivated and then find that there's a serious problem with the new system.

Answer:Transfer installation to new hardware

Windows 10 will de-activate on the first boot on the new hardware. The only thing you will lose is some of the personalization settings customization and you will start getting nag screens to activate Windows 10.

I wanted to run fedora from within vista like Vmware workstation, but I can't afford it. What are the limitations or restrictions with Vmware player? Will I still be able to install software within the linux installation like a normal installl? I am just confused on how this sort of thing works. I am assuming that somehow Workstation converts an ISO or linux installation to some format that vmware player will be able to use. If this is true, where are these files? Are there distros somewhere that have been converted? Any help would be wonderful.
 

Answer:Vmware Workstation vs. Vmware player

VMWare player can only play (ie RUN) virtual machines that have already been created in either VMWare Server or VMWare Workstation

Workstation costs $$$ but server is free, each has different features.

You can download prebuilt VM's from VMware.com, look for 'virtual appliances'

If you get work/server, you can tell it to use the ISO image as a CDRom drive and install from that, but YOU have to build the machine, just as if it was a real physical machine. It doesnt convert the ISO into a machine for you.

Hi,

First post coming up....

I have created a profile snapshot, using Windows Easy Transfer (WET) on a 32bit XP machine and have placed the resulting file on a network drive.
I then went to my new 64bit W7 pc and downloaded what I believed to be the correct WET version - wet7xp_x64. However, when I ran the executable I received a message "The version of Windows you have installed does not match the update you are trying to install."
I'm running W7 Pro SP1 and have Sophos installed. However Sophos didn't have a problem on the XP machine so don't think it's that.

Any thoughts anyone?

Answer:Windows 7 Easy Transfer installation problem

Hi Andy, welcome to the Seven Forums.

You don't need to install WET on Windows Seven, it's built-in. Just type Easy Transfer on Start Menu > Search field to find it.

I bought a 120 GB Corsair Force 3 SSD to use as my system drive. My current Windows installation is working just fine and I heard there's a way to transfer your current Windows installation to a new drive in a few minutes rather than spending hours and hours re installing each program one by one.

How do I transfer my installation to the new drive to avoid having to re install every program?

Can this be done for free or does it require the purchase of special software?

Thanks

Hello

Whenever i try to install a game that requires InstallShield I seem to get this error (http://noob.hu/07/0608/sillyerror.jpg)

I currently run Windows XP Service Pack 2 on a computer with a Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~3.0GHz processor and with a GeForce 8800GT graphics card. I've been googleing around a bit and seen a couple of different solutions but none of them seems to work, so i was hoping i good get some help on this brilliant forum.

Answer:Feature Transfer Error/InstallShield Installation Information

Actual CD's/DVD's or images? From the error it looks like it can't the disk. Are you using the default save location or a custom location? Try the default and see what happens. Is you .NET framework up to date? You may also want get XP up to date.

Hey guys I have an 80gig and it is crashing, I reparied it and have it going for now, I bought the new Hitachi 7200rpm 200gig to install and right now I have it in an external case so I can hook it up to USB.  I understand that I can make a set of recovery disk and install the new hard drive and then run them.  But I do NOT understand if it will just install the recovery partition and windows and then I have to reinstall all my sofware.  I am on international travel and don't have the ability to reinstall everyhting.  Will the recovery disk reinstall my software applications and software or just what the system came with new.  I hear of IBM system migration software which transfers files and settings, so maybe thats what I need, but I can't find enough info on it to know for sure. I would just like to hear it from somene that has moved over everything from one hard drive to another.  If I could reinstall the software there wouldn't be any problems, but I need to have all my data transferred including the software programs without any re-installation.  Thanks  DK

Recently I have noticed a third party application we are using in our company has not been working properly on certain computers.  I contacted the vendor for support, and they said I should check if My Computer under Control Panel-->Administrative
Tools-->Component Services--> Computers has a red line through it.  On all the computers where the app is not working, this line appears indicating that there is a problem with Component Services.
Doing some further research on the internet, I have found several posts that indicate that if a computer was setup using Easy Transfer, that this leads to a "broken" Component Services.
And indeed---every one of the computers with a broken Component Services was one that had been setup for a new user by using Easy Transfer.  The issue with Component Services does not appear on computers that were a "clean" install.
So--I know my third-party app is not working properly because of a problem in COM+.  There is info to indicate that using Easy Transfer somehow "breaks" Component Services---but no one seems to know how it does this.  There is also no clear advice
or info on how to fix it properly.  Just some general advice to "reinstall Windows".
Can anyone advise if it is possible to re-install or fix COM+ Component Services WITHOUT having to do a complete reinstall of Windows?  I have setup quite a few pcs in my company using the... Read more

Answer:Component Services (COM+) re-installation or repair: using Easy Transfer to setup a new pc breaks COM+????

Windows Easy Transfer helps you transfer your files, email, pictures and settings when moving to a new PC; Component Services are system components that cannot be transferred by means of Windows Easy Transfer.
You could try using the Windows 7 Recovery feature to perform a sort of "in place re-installation" of Windows 7 that could repair COM+: go to Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Recovery and click the "Advanced recovery methods" link and click
the "Reinstall Windows" option and insert the Windows 7 installation disc.

Hi,
I bought a new laptop with Windows XP in it, I wanted to transfer some files from my Desktop PC which has Vista to my laptop with XP, I bought a Belkin USB Data Transfer Cable to transfer files with help of Windows Easy Transfer but when I installed the soft provided with it, it seemed that I can only transfer files from XP to Vista, but not the opposite. Is there a solution or must I go back to my retailer? Those unfinished Microsoft's products really annoy me.
Is there a soft which can do the same without changing the cable?
Thanks.
 

Answer:Transfer files from Vista to XP with Windows Easy Transfer

Did you install software on both?
Generally you will need to do so.

The simple approach if you have a router is just to make sure that the network name is same on both computers, then enable file and print sharing and make sure that the LAN and file and print sharing are not blocked by the firewalls on either machine and share the drive or folders you want and then you can see them in my network places , view workgroup computers on the other computer.

You can also do this with an ethernet crossover cable ,just connecting the ethernet cards of the two (*a crossover cable has the wires at opposite ends re arranged so the in wires on one end connect to the out on the other and vice versa)
Both windows and vista have file and settings transfer wizards and networking wizards designed to make this easier; but you can just do it all manually.

With your product did it say it was vista compatible?

Sorry if this is in the wrong section.. I didn't really know what to put it under..

I was upgrading my system, from XP to Vista. I tried the 'keep all my current files and settings' option for the upload, but it wouldn't let me use it.
So, I used the file and settings transfer wizard to transfer all my files to my external hard drive. Then I deleated my files on my computer - no point in having two copies. (I now know how stupid this idea was).
When I had successfuly uploaded Widows vista onto my computer, I found that it didn't actualy have the files and settings transfer wizard - it had something called 'Easy Transfer' instead. Easy tranfer is incompatible with the File and settings transfer wizard.

So, now all my files are sitting on my Hard drive in .dat files, and I don't know how to get them back.

Help me please.
Thanks
 

Answer:File and Settings Transfer Wizard vs. Easy Transfer

you could download and install FAST to complete the transfer. i know that solves the problem when migrating from one XP /SP combination to another, perhaps it will work for an XP to Vista migration too. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...c9-f16c-4c52-a203-8daf944dd555&displaylang=en

I have 2 PCs, both running XP Pro SP2.
One is mine and one is my wife?s.
Both are connected to a Linksys BEFSR41 v3 router which is then connected to a cable modem.
Both can connect at high speed to the internet.
Both are on the same workgroup and have unique names.
They can see each other in the workgroup.
They can ping each other.
I can browse all shared drives in both directions from both PCs.
Everything seems to be working perfectly except if I try and transfer a file from my PC to my wife?s it takes approx 2 minutes per MB. However if I transfer a file the other way it works flawlessly and at high speed.

I have checked that all the required services are running and that there is only one master browser.

I have changed all the cables and tried different ports on the router.

NetMeter shows a maximum transfer speed of about 250kbps and the networking tab in task manager shows a network utilization of only 1%

Any advice would be gratefully received, as this is slowly driving me insane.
 

Answer:Slow file transfer in one direction, quick transfer the other way!

You should try data transfer using something other than WInbdows Networking. Set up some FTP server software for example. This way you can see if the problem is with the network or with Windows.

Looks like Easy Transfer won't work for my situation.

My mobo is unstable & I'm rebuilding the system with a new mobo and proc. I want to just transfer the profiles etc. to an external HDD & reload Win 7 on same SSD after I complete the build.

However, looking through the documentation on Win 7 Easy Transfer - it looks like you have to port the data from one 'live' comp to another 'live' comp. In my case, I want to save the data from a crippled machine, then kill it and scavenge the good parts to use in the new build... not make a new machine first.

Is there any way to migrate the data & profiles 'the old fashioned' way?

Answer:Increase transfer speed of windows file transfer (SMB)

Android smb shares are always slow.

I migrated to a new machine using easy transfer. I copied my files (user and data) to a hard drive that I installed in my new machine. I copied everything back and it all worked fine. Over time (the last year) I have altered my config and even wiped the OS and did a clean install. My problem is I would like to move some data files out of the Mig configuration to a useable format, but when I try to use easy transfer, it wants to bring over the user files as well to my c:. The problem with this is I have a very small c: that just has the os on it. Easy transfer wants to bring over 57 GB of user and system files that I don't want, and won't fit on the drive. The program will not allow me to choose another drive (other than c or not bring the system and user files over. It will not allow me to bring the files I want without these. I am not sure if I can recover these files (mostly pictures and music). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Read the documentation. The cable is used to transfer personal files, pictures, videos etc from one system to another. It's not for transfering operating system files such as drivers, unless you have copies of the drivers in your My Documents folder?

I want to transfer my account settings from one account to another in Windows 7. A lot of the settings seem to have transferred over, but not all of them, for example the autoplay settings are set to the default in the new account. I need to find a way to transfer all the settings from all control panels to the new account.

So far, the only solution I've found is using the User State Migration Tool, but I'm loathe to use something that complicated unless I have to. Does anyone know of an easier way of transferring everything?
 

Answer:Easy Transfer Wizard doesn't transfer everything

Hi

Sadly it doesnt transfer everything and in the main you really dont want all settings transfered as main applications need to be re-installed anyway so they will reset their defaults and as for autoplay, its disabled by default in Windows 7 as a security measure for stopping malware spreading, read more HERE


I didnt find much I missed in settings with the Easy Transfer Wizard when I did 3 PCs reciently for friends/reletives, my own main one had all user settings pretty much intact.

I split it into a bunch of different folders, trying to do each one separately, but to no avail. No error message, or any other indication that there is a problem.

Why is this?! I need those files and windows has screwed me. Everything is basically the same as before I reinstalled. Same computer, same windows 7 installation just recovered to factory settings. Same system language as before. BTW I'm on a Toshiba L505 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium.

I have tried all the usual suspects such as a clean boot and uninstalling my antivirus to rule out third party interference. I have more than enough space on both my computer and on the external hard drive. I have tried only transferring a user account a few MBs large. I have reinstalled the OS twice just in case something went wrong there. I have clicked on the .MIG file directly. All lead to the same error message.The transfer file seems to be intact and not currupt

Is there another software other than WET that can use the same transfer file that WET created to restore my files? Please help me solve this if you can or at least point me in the right direction because right now I'm clueless. I can't emphasize how important those files are to me. I've searched for solutions on several forums and it seems tha... Read more

Answer:Help with Vmware Plz

VmWare comes with no pre-installed Operating Systems. You have to install them yourself. When you chose the OS from the drop down list that is the Operating System you are telling VmWare you want to install. That is why you are getting the error message.

You must physical have a valid copy of the Operating System Installation CD/DVD to install the OS.

Question: VMware

Hey guys I'm new to the forums so I hope I posted in the right area.

I just recently installed VMware on my Windows 7 computer and wanted to start an FTP server with Solaris. This isn't the issue just thought i would put in some background stuff. The computer broke and now I can't even put anything on it until I get the parts.

But my question is, is it possible to transfer the image of Solaris from my VMware to the other computer I'm trying to put it on. IF you need any information please let me know, I'll be happy to post more.

Answer:VMware

Should be able to. I remember one of my professors distributing a WinME VM image for us to use for some of our assignments, and we all downloaded the same image / imported into VMWare Player.

Question: VMWare and x64?

Alright, so this has been bugging me for some time, and I even called VMWare for help and nobody there was able to help.

Despite the installer from their site saying x86 and x64, it insists on installing to Program Files (x86) and always shows as 32-bit in task manager.

I thought, maybe it's because I'm emulating a 32-bit OS, so it was running in 32-bit... so I tested XP x64 (Didn't have a Vista 64 machine installed yet), and all but ONE of them is still 32-bit.

Screenshot:
Has anyone here gotten VMWare to run native in 64-bit? I've tried it several times, in both 6.5 and the newest version 7 (the screenshot is the newest, installed today) and it never acts like a 64-bit program, even though it's supposed to be one.

Answer:VMWare and x64?

Hi there, the program install itself in Program Files(x86) folder because the installer is 32bit. The processes in taskmgr shows *32 because the processes are not coded fully with x64 architecture. But that doesnt mean that its not 64 bit compatible.

For example: My Vipre Anti-virus sits in Program Files (x86) folder and in taskmgr, its processes has *32 in the end. But its still supports 64bit OS.

Question: Vmware

I know that we can do lot of work using the vmware. It may also be used to install os's by which we can work as working in the local machine without wasting the hard disk space that the os originally takes.
I want an overview of the usage of this software. Further I want to know any critical damages possible particularly the one's which make the originally insatlled os to not boot.

Cheers.
 

Answer:Vmware

The first thing to understand about VMWare Workstation (full title) is that it runs in what is generally referred to as a 'kiosk' or 'virtual PC'. You can rest assured it doesn't affect your O/S in the way you describe but creates its own image files from an XP, Linux, or Vista installation disk, then runs in its own 'window' separate from the host O/S.

I hope you are getting an idea of it now. Though it is separated from the host O/S it is capable of using existing peripherals connected to the Host PC, such as printers, scanners, external and internal hard disks, internet etc. It installs and runs basically just like any other program would so not a lot to worry about.

I use it myself and can highly recommend it. You could for example run XP on a Vista host machine or vice-versa or even Windows 98 if your nostalgic or want to run older software or test new programs within it before installing on the real computer etc.

You can save the 'image' files VMWare creates anywhere you wish and load them in when required. They don't need to reside on the C: drive for example. I hope this answers most of your questions, and I've found it excellent and trouble free with an easy enough learning curve.

Question: Help with VMWare

I am using VMWare Workstation(the most recent version) on vista, and made a few virtual machines now which are all working. But I want to be able to use a partition of my physical hard drive as the drive for my virtual machine. But after I have set it up, I come to run it and I get this message:Operation on file "\\.\PhysicalDrive0" failed (Access is denied).If the file resides on a remote filesystem, please make sure your network connection and the server where this disk resides are functioning properly.If the file is a CD-ROM image or a floppy image connected to one of the virtual machine's drives, choose Continue, then disconnect the drive. In all other cases choose Abort to terminate the session.I then have to press abort, and it closes down my virtual machine. It happens as the machine boots up. I am an administrator etc. on vista. And I am trying to install onto my second partition, which is currently an empty partition.Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or had a simelar problem, or even know a website where I might be able to find an answer.Thanks tobyb

Hi,
I have installed W8 under VMWare Player, but there is a yellow flag at the ethernet card and therefore no network connection possible. The VMWare NIC ist connected.
Any suggestions?
Kaloschke

Answer:No NIC under VMWare

Hi there
1) Did you enable NAT or Bridged Networking for the VM (If it's a silly question please ignore).
2) Do you have any Networking (either Wireless or Wired) working on the Host and enabled -- If there's no HOST networking enabled AND WORKING you can't enable the VMware Nic. (The Host doesn't have to be connected to the Internet but the Network card MUST BE ACTIVE and WORKING even if you choose Host Only Networking for the VM).

Ensure also VMware tools is installed -- I've never run into Networking problems on a VM -- on the Host yes many times !!!.

Hi guys this is my first post here, but from now on I'll be often contributing with my posts here. I promise =)
I have few questions about vmware workstation, im fairly new at using it. So if there are some people here who use it and can help it'd be great.

1: What is the easiest and simplest way to copy files between guest and host computer? (Please give some small tutorial too)

2: If I set guest memory for example to 1gb and I have 4gb total on host. Will my host always be using only 3 when guest is
running even if it doesnt use whole 1gb? Means I will temporary loose this 1gb always when running guest? Or does it work another way?

3: Vmware icon running on my task bar even if virtual machine doesnt run. Can I disable this icon? Or does it have any special function?

4: My network connections shows new unidentified network (most likely this belongs to vmware). It probably has different IP.

4a:Anything special you would recommend me to do about networking with virtual machine?

5: Do I have to install firewall, antispyware soft, and antivirus on virtualpc even if they are already installed on host?
Its likely that answer will be yes, but what if I dont use virtualpc to browse at all, is it necessary in that case also?

6: Do I have to treat it like real PC and do things like defrag, spyware scan, registry fix, tweaks etc ?

7: Anything I should know as new vmware user what you would recommend me to do ?

Question: VMWare and XP

Not sure this is the correct forum, but I figured I'd give it a try. Right now we have a large group of client machines running XP and a Windows 2000 file/print server and Windows 2000 BDC. Our manager wants to have the clients boot up and start a virtual session to a server where all the apps and data will reside so nothing but an OS is loaded on the clients. Anyone had any experience doing this? Ideas? Thanks.

Question: VMware

Someone told me about this software and was wondering what people thought of it? Is it easy to work with? Is the VMware server the one to d/l with all types of of windows o/s and Linux o/s?
 

Answer:VMware

VMWARE has two free options, server and the VMWARE player. There are 3rd party utilities to build VMWARE virtual configurations for the VMWARE player around.

Note that Microsoft Virtual PC is also free to download, and it comes with all the stuff to use it out of the box.

I've found that VMWARE usually is a better choice for non-Windows operating environments, and MS-VPC works better for Windows emulation. I have both running here, and I use VMWARE for Linux and VPC for various versions of Windows and MS-DOS.

If the Windows Firewall is on on the guest XP system, that would block you from being able to ping it.
